] >>> welcome to cbs "this morning." i'm charlie rose in new york. norah o'donnell is in washington. the presidential candidates are looking for momentum. president obama did something his critics did he did not do on wednesday he came out swinging. >> on thursday the president accused governor mitt romney of not being honest with the american people. nancy cordes is at the white house after covering the obama campaign. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well this is the obama campaign's way of turning lemons into lemonade. out on the campaign trail in a new campaign trail they argued romney had a great performance but only because he was untethered from the truth. a different president obama emerged on thursday, more aggressive and combative and ready to respond to his republican opponent. >> governor romney may dance around his position, he may do a tap dance and a two step, but if you want to be president then you owe the american people the truth. >> reporter: it was a new line of attack the president used all day before 30,000 supporters in wisconsin and earlier in denver
is live in colorado with a preview. good morning. >> good morning, norah. good morning, charlie. both candidates have been under enormous pressure, preparing for more than a month. we saw them take a break to get away from it all but then last night the video changed the conversation. romney went for mexican at chipotle along with ohio senator rob portman, playing the role of president obama in mock debates. in nevada, the president, who has been rehad hersing with massachusetts senator john kerry as romney, went to the hoover dam. >> it's spectacular. i've never seen it before. >> reporter: both left the day's campaigning to their number twos. in charlotte, vice president joe biden was trying to argue that romney would raise taxes on the middle class when he implied that president obama's policies already have hurt. >> how they can justify raising taxes in the middle class that's been buried the last four years, how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes? >> reporter: biden later tried to dig out of that hole. but republicans pounced. >> vice president biden just today s
've not heard before. >> yeah. a lot of that, you know, charlie depends on the questions. but i think a lot of what the specifics that you're talking about as far as what tax reform looks like, whether it's lowering the corporate rate in order to make sure we're more competitive as an economy in this global marketplace but also lowering middle class tax burden, broadening the base and making the american economy more competitive as a result, i think that you'll hear a great deal of specifics. most importantly you'll hear the contrast because the president's reforms haven't been enough to help the economy. >> now let's turn to robert gibbs, he's a senior advicer to the obama campaign. good morning, robert. >> good morning, guys. how are you >> i also want to give you and opportunity to respond to that tape that was aired by fox the president talking about what happened in new orleans. does the president believe the bush administration did not help the victims of hurricane katrina because of their race? >> well, as you said, the president said that the incompetence that surrounded the federal

with the super pac. people are energized and very excited. >> charlie, what does that mean? can you give me more specifics? we were looking at your money, $96.7 million raised through august 3 st. your second best day ever, how much would that be, ballpark? >> i'm not going to go into exact numbers and give a competitive advantage over to bill. i do think an important point we heard earlier is your previous guest talked about restore our future going dark for a few weeks. >> yes. >> our strategy was in the month of august to respond to the obama team's attacks. in the month of august, president obama's campaign itself spent almost $200 million running attack ads against mitt romney. and we saw our role at restore our future to spend as much money as possible in the month of august when the romney campaign was -- had shortage of primary election money. and wasn't able to spend a lot of the money they had. so we spent money responding to the obama attacks in the months of august. >> and then decided not to spend in september is what you're saying? >> and now we're moving into our general election
republican governor charlie crist joins us around tells us why he is backing president obama. governor crist is next, after this. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] at&t. the nation's largest 4g network. now covering 3000 more 4g cities and towns than verizon. at&t. rethink possible. >> geraldo: back live with just 38 days until the election, president obama maintains his 6% lead in the gallup you daily tracking poll. he is up 50% to 44% for governor romney. rasmussen has it much tighter, though. has the president up by just two points, 48 to 46 for mr. romney. could the spreading benghazi gate scandal slow the president's momentum? let's ask former governor charlie crist of the crucial battleground state of florida. governor crist it in tampa. mario diaz was in miami. governor crist, my mom says hi. still remembers you fondly when you dropped by her 85th birthday. i have to say governor rick scott is sending her love letters. i don't know, man. out of sight, out of mind. you got to get back into the game. >> your mother is a great lady and i was honored to be at her birthday and i want to t
on this from charlie hirt, who is a columnist for "the washington times." charlie, good to see you. mr. obama, and i read the transcript. i watched the tape. he never specifically blames racism for the failed assistance in the aftermath of hurricane katrina. but does he imply it? >> yeah. i think absolutely, gregg, he definitely implies it. that campaign four years ago which i covered for the "new york post" at the time, was a, you know, it was a brilliant campaign. he was so careful to be sure to never suggest, every in, it was never a divisive campaign. he never allowed any hint of racism accusations to ever creep into any of his messages. he was very careful to sort of present a, himself as a healer and unifier. in this speech, which was clearly not one that was very widely covered. it was before he really took off as a major candidate and people started taking him really seriously is the opposite of that. it is very divisive. whether talking about blaming the response to katrina on racism or at least suggesting that very clearly, or talking about our neighborhoods and our people versus th
the votes add up for republicans in pennsylvania. i always say it's like charlie brown, lucy and the football. every time charlie brown tries to kick the football, lucy pulls it away. that's pennsylvania for republicans. look at the numbers and say theoretically we can get there but ultimately can never get there. s there this ruling is an icing or cherry on top. i don't think they would have won the state regardless, less likely today. >> and when you look at the fact that early voting is starting in ohio, iowa, all these states already voting, how does that affect the way the candidates are spending their time and money? >> you're actually seeing them literallies and president obama's rallies he had been going to in ohio last week, were all about getting the early vote out, making sure people were registered and saying hey, remember, folks, october 2nd, start voting early. you're seeing that more active than from the romney campaign. paul ryan was out in iowa, iowa is a state having some early voting, according to our inbed out there, paul ryan wasn't making the same exhort

weinbaum is 28, an engineer and self-described social conservative from jacksonville. and charlie adkins, a 56-year- old real estate manager, a former homebuilder who struggled we met in downtown orlando, in the heart of one of the most hotly contested regions, of one of the most hotly contested states in the 2012 election. welcome to you all. thanks for joining us both to watch and to discuss what happened tonight. i want to know if anybody's opinion of either candidate was changed by watching them debate each other for 90 minutes. did anybody see either of the two men in a different way when it was all over? >> i think governor romney, especially by opening with a story of how it was either him or his wife had met someone who was struggling to find a job, had one job, didn't work and happened multiple times, that was-- i don't know if i've watched enough of him on the stump but that was the kind of thing i was expecting him to say. that was a softer side. he did seem a little more softer, a little more compassionate than i had expected him to. >> reporter: suzanne? >> i was going to sa

prepared. they have everything they want to say -- >> i am having nightmare flashbacks. charlie, what do you think that the candidates need to be to be considered quote/unquote the winner? or will they both claim victory regardless? >> i don't think we will have a major moment in any of these debates, unless somebody does something completely -- incredibly stupid, which mitt romney -- could possibly do that. i don't see president obama doing that. he is a lot more disciplined. he is more comfortable on the stage. , i think than mitt romney. for mitt romney's part, he needs to go out there and not try to be liked. he is not a particularly... likeable candidate. i think he needs to say, i will be a competent technocrat on the economy and focus on that and not try to be a rock star because president obama has that sort of sewn up, i think. in an election like this, where have you high unemployment and people are very, very dissatisfied, i think you have a chance -- that really could be an opening for a challenger. i don't think that you -- normally, voters go with the candidate they would l
